Globe to deploy infrastructures in MRT-3 stations
Apart from lighting up the 700MHz aimed to improve efficiency in mobile data, Globe Telecom will build its own wireless infrastructures throughout MRT-3.
Just today, the telco company has signed an agreement with the Metro Railway Transit Corporation (MRTC) allowing them to deploy macro sites and small cells to help decongest the massive data traffic in train stations and its surrounding areas. Globe’s Senior Vice President for Program Governance, Network Technical Group Joel Agustin said that this move will further enhance the digital lifestyle of Globe customers even while on their way to work or after work.
Apart from this, Globe will also provide free Wi-Fi services, similar to those in malls, but limited only to 30-minutes daily. While we wait for this to happen, just imagine the riders of MRT-3 playing Clash of Clans while waiting for the trains to arrive.
